Many of us will have heard of ChatGPT – an artificial intelligence (AI) natural language processing tool that will answer our questions and assist us with tasks such as composing emails, essays, and code.

It is free (for now), and has proved to be the fastest growing app of all time, gaining 100m active users in only two months after its launch in November 2022. Elon Musk described ChatGPT as ‘scary good’.

To some, it represents the greatest opportunity of a generation, to others, it represents a challenge to the world as we know it – a dystopian nightmare of robotic dominance over the human spirit.

But for the rest of us, it remains a mystery. We hear the noise but are yet to be privy to the reality. It is reminiscent of the start of the internet. Those few in-the-know became early adopters whilst it passed by the majority for a time. And now look where we are with it!

In this webinar, we assume little to no knowledge of ChatGPT and similar products (such as Bard or Bing), in order to discuss the foundations of ChatGPT and both the risks and opportunities it could bring.

There are a lot of big questions about this big topic, so we should not avoid them any longer.

We discussed:

  • How does ChatGPT differ (if at all) to search engines?
  • Is it AI or machine learning?
  • How do we get started?
  • What could/should we use it for?
  • How safe is it, and how may we control it?
  • Should we embrace it, or be terrified?
  • What are the longer-term implications for cybersecurity, our job security, lives, families, and society?
